Went to dinner after the Polynesian show, and because of dietary restrictions unfortunately was a bit limited in choices. The staff, in particular Kilei, went above and beyond to make sure I had good options and were so accommodating. Everything that came out was delicious, but the personal touch Kilei had in going out of her way was really appreciated.... More

Great Japanese food! The sushi is delicious, as are the noodles and the gyoza. The prices are reasonable for the area, and the waitstaff are very polite and helpful!

Monstera is a very popular restaurant. The service is friendly if occasionally overworked. The avocado and vegetable sushi we had was good. We were going to order the udon but it contains MSG. We had chicken teriyaki instead which was fine.

We've been there over the past few years. It's good but the sushi is good-average. There are better places within a 30 minute drive.

Not many choices nearby but this one was affordable and good. We were lucky enough to nab one of only two outdoor tables. The place was packed. Offered nice selection of Japanese foods and we enjoyed the tuna and the salad.

Had a fantastic Japanese dinner. Lovely sushi rolls and tried the special, cheek of the yellowtail fish. Simple dish, full of flavor. Excellent service.

We had a great meal here. Casual place and great food. The waiter was extremely helpful. Their signature appetizer or small plate tuna was unbelievably good. Noodles and sushi were great. We also had tofu steak and that was tasty as well.

Was a great surprise!! Was recommended it by someone at our hotel as our first choice that evening was booked. Thoroughly enjoyed their original role, and their sashimi. Would definitely go back!!

You know a place is good when it's packed! We couldn't get a reservation till 8 pm which was late for us to eat but we really wanted good sushi. We still didn't get seated till 8:20, although the staff was very apologetic. Two other couples we seated at the same time as us and got their food rather quickly...I... More
